I messed up my download on Win 8.1, effects and fatal errror

Recommended Posts

I am embarrassed to say I and I alone made a mess of the download on my Win 8.1. 


I downloaded Paint.net OK,


but foolishly tried to copy the Effects that I had on my Vista. 


I not only tried to copy them, but I got them into the program area NOT the Effects folder.


I could not uninstall via Windows standard uninstall.  It said "Error on installation"


Then I deleted the folder/files for Paint.net. That went OK.


Attempted reinstall and got the message "fatal error"  there were no further messages.


Can anyone help me?  I feel really dumb, I do know better.

Sounds to me like there's some corrupt registry keys (something something things I've read elsewhere that I use to sound techie)

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait
